Crime Statistics

The Broward County Crime Commission holds significant validity in the compilation of Crime Statistics. Through this data, the Crime Commission and law enforcement can focus where its attention needs to be best utilized.


Compiling crime statistics is a tiered process that has been thoroughly refined by the Federal Bureau of Investigation through Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR). The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program was conceived in 1929 by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to meet a need for reliable, uniform crime statistics for the nation.


In 1930, the FBI was tasked with collecting, publishing, and archiving those statistics. Today, several annual statistical publications, such as the comprehensive Crime in the United States, are produced from data provided by nearly 17,000 law enforcement agencies across the United States. Most of this data can be found on the FBI’s web site:Click here for the FBI website.


Other annual publications, such as Hate Crime Statistics and Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted, address specialized facets of crime. Special studies, reports, and monographs prepared using data mined from the UCR’s large database are published each year as well. In addition to these reports, information about the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), answers to general UCR questions, and answers to specific UCR questions are available on the FBI site: Click here for the FBI website
